Almost as old as the “which came first, the chicken or the egg question” is the question of whether New England or Manhattan clam chowder is better. I prefer Manhattan, though I know I’m in the minority. In this clip from PBS’s The Mind of a Chef, April Bloomfield and Anita Lo agree that New England wins out, and together they make a pretty classic version of the soup, but with a Spring twist.
In addition to clams (that they when clamming for themselves) and the usual ingredients, they throw in fava beans, peas, spring potatoes, and garlic scapes.
